O-R-E-O... ooooh! Sing it with me...

Oreos may very well be one of my favorite cookies. So it was a total let down when my sister in law announced she was not making her usual Oreo truffles as her cookie swap cookie. I decided that it just isn't Christmas without the truffles, and I made a batch!

They are super easy to make, require little ingredients, and are always a hit!

Enjoy :)

Oreo Truffles



16 ounce package of Oreos

8 ounce block cream cheese, softened

16 ounces candy melts, in whatever flavor or color you want your shell to be


Place entire package of Oreos into food processor and grind until they are a fine crumb consistency.

Combine cream cheese and Oreo crumbs in a big mixing bowl until it has formed a dough (the oil in the cookies will give the dough a nice sheen and will prevent the cream cheese from sticking to anything but the Oreos).

Use a cookie scoop to scoop out bits of the dough (I used a 1 inch cookie scoop) and roll into balls.

Once your balls are formed, you can melt your chocolate and then dip them in the melted chocolate (follow the directions on your packaging for melting of the chocolate). When dipping, I use two oversized spoons to roll the balls back and forth in.

Place the balls on a wax paper lined cookie sheet and chill in the freezer.

Yield: 24-26 1-inch balls.
